Senior Analytics Professionals to be Challenged by Young Guns

International and local analytics professionals will be at the ready to answer challenging career questions when the Institute for Analytics Professionals of Australia (IAPA) holds their inaugural Challenge the Chief event for young analysts and data scientists looking for advice on managing their careers.

The two-hour event is part of the IAPA National Conference  and ADMA Advancing Analytics event on Monday 4 August at Sydney’s Hilton Hotel. Challenge the Chief runs from 1.45pm-3.45pm and is designed for those studying analytics and analysts with one to three years’ experience under their belt.

Challenge the Chief will feature seven international and local analytics professionals who can answer the tough questions and offer career guidance. At the table:

• Kevin Ross (pictured), Chief Scientist of Optimisation and Modelling, Fonterra NZ
• Igor Elbert, Principal Data Scientist, US
• Evan Stubbs, Chief Analytics Officer, SAS AU
• Mark Hunter, Head of Analytics, Coles Financial Services, AU
• Antony Ugoni, Head of Analytics, Seek AU
• Steve Lockwood, Head of Marketing Science AU & NZ, Facebook
• Emma Gray, former Chief Data & Loyalty Expert, Woolworths AU.

“At IAPA and ADMA we are doing all we can to inspire young talent to join our industry. This is the first year we have offered a Challenge the Chief event at our national conference. Young analysts have been asking for an event where they can obtain some sound career advice, find out more about a day in the life of a seasoned professional analyst and check if they are on track, career wise,” said Jodie Sangster, IAPA and ADMA CEO.

“Many are finding themselves in a complex environment where they are highly sought after, but unsure of their next career moves. We’re delighted to bring together seven of the finest professional analysts at the top of their game to advise the next generation of analytics professionals coming up behind them,” she added.

The format is one chief per table with seven guests at each table. Like speed dating, participants get 15 minutes to challenge their particular chief with career questions before moving to the next chief’s table.

Tickets cost $40 and participants also get a free pass to attend the final keynote sessions of the IAPA National Conference and networking drinks. Tickets can be booked here
